Gerard T. Caneba
Michigan Technological University
Gerard Caneba is working as professor in chemical engineering department at Michigan Technological University, USA. He completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering at University of California—Berkeley Campus.With collaboration and financial support of NASA-Johnson Space Center (Houston, Texas), Dr. Caneba’s group embarked on research involving polymer composites with single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). Current efforts in this area involve the formulation of SWCNT/ polymer composite films for use as solar energy absorbers in building interior surfaces and lightweight radiation shields.
His research interests includes controlled chain polymerizations, radiation-initiated FRRPP, thermoreversible nanobiomaterials, sustainability polymer materials/systems, enhanced oil recovery and cleanup operations, carbon Nanotube/polymer composites
